    118118 call costs

    Ever use 118118? You might like to think again; "Calls to 118 118 cost £4.49 per call plus £4.49 per minute (a minimum 60 second charge applies) including VAT (tariff code SC087) plus the Access Charge set by the caller's landline or mobile phone provider.". They even charge that after they put...

  4. Question Play off Final tickets

    This question applies to all four teams in the play-offs. By approx 10.30pm on Thursday night the two finalists will have been decided. This means that these two clubs have only 8 full days in which to sell as many tickets as possible. If we surmise the average tickets sold per club is 20,000...

  6. Prittlewell Chase - Vs Yeovil - Road partly closed from 7pm Monday- Friday.

    I realise that we probably won't be overwhelmed by Shrimpers & Yeoviltinies on Tuesday but Prittlewell Chase is going to be closed between 7pm & 6am all next week roughly between just before the Hospital up to the lights at Hobleythick - according to the signs anyway. I believe this applies to...

    Would love to see the following terms approved by those loveable rouges at this months meeting. Southend United Football club to vacate Roots Hall stadium once the new stadium including the main stand is completed. The owners of the new stadium can only ever charge nominal rent lets say the...
  8. German court bans circumcision

    Ignoring the 'Jews oppressed in Germany' angle, this is a pretty major story IMO and it hasn't really been picked up over here. http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/06/27/us-germany-circumcision-idUKBRE85Q19Y20120627 "It ruled involuntary religious circumcision should be made illegal because it...

    Can we beat the bookies?

    I like a gamble, I also know I have lost a good few quid over the years. However in the field of Southend United football club this forum should have the world leaders in knowledge of this club.

    Unbeaten Run?

    If we draw after 90 mins, but lose on penalties, does this mean that the unbeaten run continues? Wasnt sure if it applies to 90/120 mins of playing football. I know that although Huddersfield lost in the play off final this didnt count against their unbeaten run. So the rule seems a bit open...
  13. Team selection

    First of all it's not Sturrock's fault that his squad is crap given everything that happened during the summer but, having seen almost every game this season, my observations - purely on the football side - are: We should stick to 4:4:2 for the rest of the season so that our players know what...

    Room 101

    If you had the opportunity to put 5 things into Room 101, and thus consign it/them to a fate worse than death, what would on your list? Note* Ron Martin is not allowed on anyone's list. The same applies to Leyton Orient, Colchester United, and West Ham. Mine would probably be this: 1...
